1 MBA 637 Financial management & Valuation (3 hrs) Western Carolina University Syllabus, Spring 20xx MBA 637, Syllabus, Fall 20xx, P a g e 1 Meeting Room: 0xx Karpen Hall, UNCA Instructor Information: Meeting Time: 6:00 8:50pm, M Name: Dr. xyz Phone (UNCA): Office: xyz Forsyth, Cullowhee Instructor s Office Hours: Phone: xxxx (o) MW: Course Description This course provides a framework for analyzing financial management and investment decisions. Practical tools for financial decisions and valuation are studied. There are seven main sections to the course, whose content ranges from foundational principles to tactical and strategic issues: (1) Cost of Capital Estimation, in which project expected returns are estimated; (2) Capital Budgeting, in which optimal criteria for project selection are applied; (3) Techniques of Valuation, which includes weighted average cost of capital (WACC), adjusted present value (APV), comparable trades, real options, and venture capital (VC) method; (4) Financing Policy, in which theoretical and practical issues relating to capital structure and dividend policies are analyzed and discussed; (5) Tactical Financing Decisions, including lease financing and the funding with hybrid instruments; (6) Investment Banking, covering capital acquisition, IPOs, financial restructuring, and mergers & acquisitions; and (7) Risk Management, dealing with the use of swaps and futures. The challenges and opportunities arising from international linkages and continual innovation in financial products and practice are taken into consideration throughout the course. Course Aims & Objectives By the end of this course, the student will be able to: 1. Estimate cash flows, risk, required returns, and value of capital projects; 2. Discuss the effect of inflation volatility, exchange rate volatility, and lack of liquidity on cash flow projections, terminal value, and liquidation value for projects in emerging markets; 3. Describe the essential elements of the Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM), and the Arbitrage Pricing Theory (APT) along with their approach to modeling the price of risk; 4. Discuss why and how asset pricing models should be modified for application to emerging countries; 5. Estimate the equity risk premium and discuss its role in the determination of required returns; 6. Apply the net present value (NPV), internal rate of return (IRR) and adjusted present value (APV) method of investment valuation; 7. Use basic options analysis to incorporate into the project valuation process the flexibility of investing in stages or having the option to abandon, and discuss the particular need of building in this flexibility for more volatile economies; 8. Calculate free cash flows to the firm and the weighted average cost of capital, based on relevant financial statement and market information; 9. Discuss the rationale for mergers, and the chief methods of valuing an acquisition target company; Course Aims & Objectives (continued)

2 MBA 637, Syllabus, Fall 20xx, P a g e Apply the Free Cash Flow (FCF), APV and market multiples approaches to valuation, critically evaluate the use of each multiple, and appraise the usefulness of valuation by parts represented by the APV method in valuing more complex global investments that might involve multiple currency cash flows and varied costs of financing; 11. Describe the venture capital (VC) method of valuation, and contrast it with the traditional discounted cash flow approach to valuation; 12. Define the concepts of the yield curve and the term structure of interest rates, and discuss how knowledge of term structure theory can be used in financial management. 13. Calculate the value of equity and bonds, using discounted cash flow techniques; 14. Discuss the effect of risk management tactics on optimal leverage; 15. Explain the parity conditions of international finance (forward-spot parity; purchasingpower parity; and interest rate parity), and discuss the major forces that influence the value of free-floating currency; 16. Identify sources of risk to the business, suggest strategies to manage risk, construct basic options-, futures-, and swaps-based strategies to hedge exposure to interest rate and exchange rate fluctuations, and analyze the effectiveness of various options-, futures-, and swaps-based strategies to hedge risk; 17. Describe the financial engineering and use of innovative, customized securities designed, for instance, with options and futures, including collateralized debt obligations (CDOs) and credit default swaps (CDSs); 18. Discuss the implications of government intervention, high and unpredictable volatility, macroeconomic disequilibria, tax legislation, bankruptcy laws, and capital rationing on both the optimal leverage and frequency of revising the optimal leverage in emerging markets; 19. Delineate the effects of information asymmetry, agency problems, bankruptcy costs, clientele considerations and taxes on the firm s financing and payout policies; 20. Discuss and explain unique financing tendencies of new, high-tech companies; 21. Suggest possible effects of capital structure and payout policies on firm valuation; 22. Describe possible reasons for the use of preferred stock, warrants, and convertibles in corporate financing; 23. Discuss the effect of the quality of corporate governance on valuation; 24. Compare and contrast the capital structure and dividend policies usually adopted by firms in developed economies with those typical of firms in emerging economies, and provide potential explanations for any observed differences in financing policy; 25. Distinguish between operating and financial leases ; implement-lease versus-purchase decisions, and identify the financial statement effects of leases; and 26. Describe the process and considerations involved in various methods of raising financing in capital markets, including private placements, IPOs, and seasoned offerings; and 27. Discuss the purpose and evolving role of private equity (PE) and venture capital (VC) in global finance, the structure of the PE and VC industries, and the basic differences in the nature and size of transactions undertaken by PE and VC.

4 MBA 637, Syllabus, Fall 20xx, P a g e 4 Valuation Project This project is completed by a group of 3-4 students. The group agrees upon an industry of interest, and each student in the group picks a company within that industry. The objective is to apply many of the tools developed in class to arrive at the valuation of each of the firms selected. These are the essential elements of the project (more detailed instructions will be provided separately on the first day of class): (1) Discounted cash flow (DCF) valuation using an appropriate model, with justification of model choice; (2) Delineation of assumptions in the DCF model, and analysis of the sensitivity of valuation to your assumptions (growth rate, growth phases, estimated capex, etc); (3) Valuation by comparables, including criteria for choice of comparable firms and multiples/value indicators; and (4) Reconciliation of alternative valuation figures to provide a single value estimate and a buy/sell recommendation. Each group will be given a maximum of 15 minutes to make a presentation of their valuation exercise during the last class of the semester. Additional details of the requirements for this presentation and format of the written proposal will be provided by the instructor.
